hillary clinton, chuck hagel, leon panetta and now john brennan. are they getting what they want out of this, which is basically to try to put some mud on the president's record? >> absolutely. i think that's been the clear goal. >> i think actually not. if you look particularly at the hearings of chuck hagel and hillary clinton, you see a lot of basically republican free lansing going on. i was surprised at how the lack of collective, thoughtful questioning -- you would have thought that they would have gotten in behind closed doors beforehand and said, what's our line of questioning going to be, what is second kwengs and thoughtful? in fact, that wasn't the case which is why hillary clinton most vividly gave as good as she got and came out on the winning side. i think hagel, given his inconsistencies came away unscarred. i think it's also interesting, most folks may not know this, the suggestion made yesterday by dianne feinstein of having another court look at this stuff, well, she made that suggestion that at the very moment a particular federal judge, who i happen to know is sit

to ireland under president clinton. let's start in afghanistan. word that president karzai is ordering special forces out of this key province. what do we make of this? is this something that should be cause for concern or is this karzai bluster? >> it is a serious allegation obviously. i think the head of the international force has handled it properly by saying we take these allegations seriously and will investigate them. until then there is not much to be said about it because you have to get the facts. >> let's go to secretary kerry. when hillary clinton was appointed her first trip was to asia. what is the significance of john kerry going to europe and then to the middle east on his first trip? >> according to press reports and i think they are accurate secretary kerry is determined to make a real effort in the region to try to bring about peace between israelis and palestinians to get an agreement that i think would be very constructive not just for those parties but for the whole region and for the united states. so i applaud him for the efforts. >> lots of states men have trie

to remember deficit reduction alone is not an economic plan. we learned in the 1990s whether bill clinton was president, nothing shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good, middle class jobs. that should be our driving focus. making american a magnet for good jobs. equipping our people with the skills required to fill those jobs and making sure their hard work leads to a decent living. those are the things we should be pushing ourselves to think about and work on every single day. that is what the american people expect. that's what i'm going to work on every single day to help deliver. so i need everybody who is watching today to understand we got a few days, congress can do the right thing. we can avert just one more washington manufactured problem that slows our recovery, and bring down our deficits in a balanced, responsible way. that's my goal. that's what would do right by these first responders. that's what would do right by america's middle class and what i'm going to be working on and fighting for, not just over the next few weeks, but over the next few y

clinton, ambassador dennis ross. good to see you, sir. >> reporter: >> nice to be here. >> he's set to meet with king abdullah, salam fayad and benjamin netanyahu as well. what do you think the main mission doing this trip is? >> i think mostly trying from his standpoint to learn what's going on in the region, a region being characterized by upheaval right now. in the case of jordan, they have close to 300,000 refugees from syria. in the case of the israelis, obviously they are going through a period of government formation, but they are looking at a new egypt, a border with syria which is not stable the way it used to be, a view of the palestinians that something needs to be done, and so i think senator rubio is going out there at a time when there's great uncertainty, and i think he's trying to understand from the leaders how do they see it, number one, what are some of choices, what are some of the biggest challenges, and how should we be positioning ourselves. i see it mostly as a listen and learn. >> a fact-finding trip, nothing political. >> what can we make from the fact he's

.c. that's a staple. so this became really theater, and bill clinton as well, used that in a way that previous presidents have not done. >> is the president, is he, i guess, faded to overreach tonight? >> i think if he does not overreach, it probably would not say very much for him. you're always expecting a president at the beginning of the second term to ask for more than he knows he will get. ronald reagan got tax reform his second term. that was about it on domestic policy. he asked for more than that in that speech. >> presidential historian, michael beschloss, great to see you, thank you, buddy. >> you too. thank you, thomas. >>> coming up, a different kind of state of the union history. a seating chart history. did you ever think there was one? well, there is. plus, president obama brought up marriage equality during his inaugural address. will he bring it up again tonight? andible and contusions to the metacarpus. what do you see? um, i see a duck. be more specific. i see the aflac duck. i see the aflac duck out of work and not making any money. i see him moving in with h
with hillary clinton, edging out her with independents, which is huge, but then the man who called him a rhino for embracing president obama, and with that label on him, can he unite republicans behind him? >> i think that's going to be one of the arguments that he's going to make coming out of these polls. incidentally, yesterday, i had a conversation with him about polls, not this one, but he was talking about polls go up and down and he expects it to go up and down, but he's going to use it to show he can bring people to the. he can get votes from republicans, as well as independents and democrats. >> a recent op-ed makes the case for christie. rubio had been called the republican savior. >> right. >> meanwhile, though, we have a new poll giving rubio a 26% favorability rating after his state of the union response, the watergate, and a recent "usa today" op-ed makes this case, again, putting christie over rubio. do you think that these are going to be the two men that we watch? >> well, the media certainly plays up rubio, and the conversation yesterday i made a remark that looked like the r
to look at this chart. it is compiled by "usa today." under president clinton there was a spike with the passage of the assault weapons ban and today under president obama since announcing his plans for gun control. is it really possible for organizations like yours to get a hold on the manufacturing arm of what is going on in the country? >> you know, we're not antigun. many of our mayors and there are almost 900 of them, are actually gun owners and some are nra members. we think law abiding people should for the most part be able to do whatever they want and buy as many guns as they like for the purposes of hunting or self-defense. our point has been that you can do a lot while respecting the second amendment to keep guns out of the wrong hands. that means felons, domestic abusers and others barred from having them. we think we've had an experiment in this country with assault rifles and high capacity magazines and it has not played out very well. and with rights come responsibilities. so it's time to get those off the streets. but in terms of what law abiding manufacturers, l
